SPRING, FINALLY!

This will be a relatively quiet month for the PTA due to Spring Break and as PARCC continues after break, but there are a few events to keep on your radar.

APRIL EVENTS

Kindergarten Orientation: Please join us in welcoming new families to McAuliffe. The PTA has a proud tradition of supporting the amazing McAuliffe staff with Kindergarten Orientation each year to show the friendliness and kindness of our school community.
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!! If you are interested, please return the form that went home last week with your contact information, or contact Sarah Barrett (sarahfbarrett@msn.com). You can also use this Sign Up Genius to pick a time.
Courtyard Cleanup: On Saturday, April 25th, please join us for this annual tradition to clean up the McAuliffe Courtyard by weeding, mulching and planting. This outdoor space is used as a classroom by many teachers on nice days.  SSL hours will be available for middle and high school students as well. Questions? Contact Marianna or Scott Kasprzak (marianna.kasprzak@gmail.com).
In addition, we are continuing our Shoe Recycling Program! Look for donation boxes in the front hallway by the Main Office.

DOWN THE ROAD…

The current PTA board has all served the maximum number of years at their current positions. We will be in need of new officers next year. If you are interested in learning more about a board position, please contact Sarah Barrett. Elections will be held at the May PTA Membership Meeting.

It won’t be long before plans will begin for the end of the year Spring Carnival! This year the Carnival will be on a Saturday (June 6) and will last 5 hours giving us a lot more time to enjoy a large variety of games, activities, and bounce houses! To make this the awesome event we know it can be, we will need lots of help. If you are interested in being a part of our team, please contact Sarah Barrett (contact info below)

MEMBERSHIP

We are thrilled to report that we are up to 215 members! That’s our highest membership total ever! But we know there are still many families who are not part of the PTA, and it’s never too late to join. We want to be sure that our membership is as diverse as our community, so if you haven’t done so already, consider joining today! JOIN ONLINE through PayPal! Your support means a lot and your membership dues help fund a wide range of classroom resources and activities!
